    Do you have health insurance in your home country? Ask them if you are covered overseas. If not check out World Nomads.

    Thank you mattocmd,

    I have checked on my health insurance company that I am subscribed and they do not cover my health insurance overseas. They referred me to check Mawista and another one Allianz for Germany Heath Insurance. Do you know if I have to purchase this health insurance before I go to Germany or when I arrive there.

    I'd call or email them and try to arrange it before you leave. That way if they cover baggage loss/protection you'll be covered.
